tatta hitotsu no shinjuku wo minuku, mitame wa kodomo zunowa otona. sono na wa matantei conan.

should I just name this Spam anime thread or something?

anyway I've been waiting forever for the full song of ao no exorcist "in my world" by rookiez is punk.
if it's out can you guys tell me and send me a link

Sadly,I think that the OP was released before the song..

08-12-2011, 08:18 AM
um.. I searched everywhere but i only saw TV side versions.

BozeSG

that's because OPs are usually used before their full version comes out. (they usually release the full version a month or so later)

go to gendou.com's music section, it basically has all the full versions of all the anime OPs. if it comes out, that's the first place they're going to put it's good quality version.

core pride is much more awesome anyway...

I've been trying to catch up with the manga since 5 months ago...:cat_whyyou:

haha I don't read the manga of it, I only watch the anime. The next episode that will be release in Animetake.com is kaito kid special..

I know about Gendou.com, but sadly they don't always have the new song release. I uploaded a few songs there my self that I just found lying in google.

been waiting for the full song of dantalian no shoka as well

as i watch the anime it looks like a crappy story no matter where I look, but I love orchestra songs..

I think people need to stop judging anime that originates from manga on its story and start judging them based on that which actually makes them anime.

ram
08-13-2011, 04:30 AM
rolf sorry about that. I just said that out of reflex on my typing.. xD

I really love dantalian no shoka as well... and I guess I'm just looking for stuffs in the story which I like in my own eye...
It's one of the best art I seen and I really love the style of it,

I think I've been seeing more anime now that are no longer japan..
I mean where the character live that is.

Anyone else waiting for Shakugan no Shana season 3? It comes out this Fall and I'm dying to see it. I might actually watch it while it airs, which I almost never do because I hate the cliffhangers and waiting.

Also, Abingdon Boys School is the best anime OP/ED band ever.

I think people need to stop judging anime that originates from manga on its story and start judging them based on that which actually makes them anime.

Sorta a necro-objection here, but got an overwhelming urge to say; Isn't a good story part of a good anime aswell? >_>

I mean, of course, it sucks when they just choose to replicate the story frame-by-frame, esspecially if it's an action anime that had little plot in the first place (Hellsing and Gantz suffer from this alot)... But alot of things like Appleseed have been truely buggered up by simplifying the plot "Just 'cause it's anime."

Seriously, they turned it from a buddy cop show into a faux-matrix kung fu flick. >_>

Ergo proxy is pretty decent, chum. Very cerebral and great characterisations, but being 100&#37; honest it does have a couple of completely pointless navel gazing episodes. I'd say watch it if you don't generally mind Eva-style mindscrews.

this is the episode 15 where black jack needs to marry his patient to rise her will to live.

You should start up again. There are a lot of really good new shows that will probably blow your mind. Prime example: Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica.


ive watched most of them too...

You need to download K-on season 2

I've seen quite a few series now. I'm just trying to watch all of the older ones first, then move onto the new. Also, I will download K-On season 2 later. There currently is no 1080p batch for it online and the torrent site that I DL from works with share ratios; meaning you have to seed at least half as much as you leech. On that site the 1080p's are also freeleech, meaning it doesn't effect your leech ratio, so if I wait it will benefit me. I kind of explained that badly but if you look it up you'll prolly understand better.

If anyone cares, you can see my watched anime by clicking this:

Just finished Baccano!

Wrote a review for my blog, here it is if anyone wants to read it...

Baccano! Review

So here it is—my first review. Now, I’ve watched a lot of anime in my time, but never have I seen anything like Baccano! When I say that, I mean it in a good way.

“During the late 1930s in Chicago, the transcontinental train, Flying Pussyfoot, is starting its legendary journey that will leave a trail of blood all over the country. At the same time in New York, the ambitious scientist Szilard and his unwilling aide Ennis, are looking for missing bottles of the immortality elixir. In addition, a war between the mafia groups is getting worse. On board the Advena Avis, in 1711, alchemists are about to learn the price of immortality.”

~Synopsis

Story:
Anyone who has seen Baccano! will agree with me that it has one of the best stories. The plot itself isn’t award-worthy, rather, the way they play it out is. Instead of the linear path many an anime take, Baccano! skips back and forth between different times and characters which intertwines with a greater, more complex plot. This may seem like it’d be confusing, but surprisingly they were able to pull it off—and well.

The series focuses on the events that occur on a train and the events with mobsters in the city. This may seem generic, but throw in a few supernatural elements and a bunch of eccentric characters and you get a recipe for an epic anime. The only trouble I had was getting through the first episode. It takes a little paying attention and time to figure out who is who and what is happening towards the beginning.

Characters:
From the eccentric and hilarious Isaac Dian and Miria Harvent to the crazy and evil-hearted alchemist Szilard Quates, this anime had one of the largest and greatest character collections in an anime I’ve seen to date. Isaac and Miria are probably also the funniest characters I’ve seen as well, with some scenes making me laugh so hard I cried. Each character in the series were interesting, and were all very enjoyable to watch. The only problem is that having 12 main characters in an anime with 13 episodes doesn’t allow for a lot of development, but they still managed to make it work.

Animation:

Baccano! has very good animation, and maintains it throughout the whole series. The colours are clear and unsaturated, and the shading is well done and realistic. There are little to no scenes that look bad, and there is never a time where the animators cut corners or make faces or bodies unproportionate; which I’ve seen in a few anime before. Overall, I’d say it’s above-average.

Overall:

Baccano! I have to say has been one of the best anime I’ve seen so far. It kept me on the edge of my seat, and after every episode I wanted to keep watching. (Which I ultimately did, marathoning all 13 episodes) Isaac and Miria keep it fresh with their comedic relief, and all the while it keeps itself serious and plays out an unimaginable story which will blow you away. The only thing I didn’t like about it was it’s short length. It leaves you wanting more, but that's a sign that it did it's job. If you haven’t seen this yet, you should.

Score:
Story - 9.5
Characters - 9
Animation - 8.5
Overall - 9.25

Mawaru Penguindrum ftw!!!!

the new season is starting, i'm really looking forward to fate/zero, i've been reading the light novels and it's really good, that and mirai nikki and hunterxhunter remake are awesome. this is going to be a really good season...

Also the new opening of Gintama... am i supposed to think that all those girls in the lift love him? Mann...

Ozzaharwood
10-11-2011, 08:43 PM
Persona 4 has started.

Fate/Zero is one of the best anime of this year so far. If they can keep this up through all their episodes it'll prolly be towards the top of my list. C3 took a freaking creepy ass twist which just made it amazing. Shakugan no Shana is weird. I hope it gets better.

BozeSG
10-24-2011, 08:32 AM
mirai nikki ep 3 was creepy as hell...


Also the new opening of Gintama... am i supposed to think that all those girls in the lift love him? Mann...one of them is otose, you know...

and yeah!!!!! finally elizabeth's backstory....

ram
10-24-2011, 09:35 AM
Yeah I got addicted at Mirai nikki after watching episode 1 I can't stop reading the manga and finished it before episode 2 comes out. D=

I already know everything that will happen, but still loving the anime so much.

On another story Gantz was sure awesome this latest chapter!! Damn those guys is sure awesome specially that mysterious guy that first slashed the head! Having all weapon useless then suddenly drawing just sword and raging into battle!! How brave is that!!!!???

Ozzaharwood
10-26-2011, 09:04 AM
Anyone who hasn't seen Steins;Gate needs to watch it now. Kind of got me depressed midway through to around the third last episode, but it was amazing. Also, Fate/Zero continues to amaze. I think the best of the season will either go to Fate/Zero or Guilty Crown. Watch them if you aren't already.

I might watch Mirai Nikki, but I'm already watching like 8 ongoing anime. I want to save some spots for if anything else I want to watch comes up. If I don't start watching it, I'll probably marathon it after it's finished.

Anyone actually watching Fate/Zero or Guilty Crown?

Believe me it was probably one of the biggest mistake I done in my whole life if I chosen not to watch it!! I'll send a DMAIL to myself now to tell myself to keep watching Steins Gate.

I just figured something out after watching these types of anime, They're not interesting in the beginning! in fact most of the anime I love so much isn't interesting in the begging (like gurren lagann).

I guess I was wrong on the impression that I should make my story interesting from the start OTL

Gunzet, have you finished watching that? the trailer doesn't actually click me but if you finished watching it and say it's awesome then I guess I would go watch it as well

I think that is not the point, it's not about how she die but more why she die and what her dead is going to bring to the other character.

I have to agree that in Gantz the writer doesn't really give a strong weight to characters dead and some times that is annoying (killing a character for just the joy of pissing of the reader is retarded), but the how a character die is something more of a personal taste.

Ocean's Dragonball Z dub was hammy as hell, perfect for a hammy-ass show.

I download my anime. If you want those sites, they are these:
For completed Series - http://www.bakabt.com/
For ongoing Series - http://www.nyaa.eu/

Good streaming sites I know of:
http://www.niconico.com/anime/
http://revolution-anime.net
www.animefreak.tv
http://www.anime-sub.com/

NicoNico is the best quality for streaming, but downloading IMO is the best way to go. Plus BakaBT has a private bitorrent tracker; so you have to upload as much as download or else you'll get banned. This keeps all torrents alive and most have 100+ seeders all the time.

If you haven't seen those anime, I recommend you watch Clannad, Code Geass, Higurashi and Black Lagoon. I have a lot more favourites, but I'm too tired to think right now. XD

Two or three, to be honest. Alot of babies in the last few episodes for some reason, too.

But the main characters drop like flies and 90&#37; of the cast are complete middle-aged dickheads, so really if you can stand a few instances of mega away with the fairies gayness early on, you'll be fine.

That camera angle happens for like a split second, I never got why it's around the internet so much. There is WAY worse campy bullshit earlier on in the series. XD

Seriously, LOGH is awesome, but I'm not going to pretend it isn't an acquired taste. If you took star trek, removed all the silly aliens and technology, and replaced them with well thought out space battles, political machinations that went somewhere, and dialogue which actually means something, you'd get LOGH. It's a space sitcom with brief spurts of intelligent tactics and hyper gore.


@Regantor: That looks pretty rad

It is. Mellowlink is probably the hardest of the hard mecha series and plays out a bit like a grimdark fighting anime. One nasty opponent per episode and all that. S'only 12 episodes long, being the only downfall.

Being honest I mostly discover stuff after either bouncing into it via youtube or digging up the origins of neat-looking concept art. The Metal Slug games are a good example, since they take loads of influence from Dominion Tank Police.

There are tons upon tons of great 80s series in particular which never made the leap into the english language. It isn't too hard to find fansubs on the net, either, which are very much a legal grey area (They have no american licenses to break, so it isn't technically speaking breaking copyright law.), so long as you have a title to look for.

What really dicks me off is when a director just 'pulls and eva' because it's like tradition at this point. At that point it's only a mindfuck because it doesn't actually mean that much. Like there is some massive life dilemma that the viewer already knows the answer to. The Rahxephon movie, Generator Gawl, and I'm pretty sure Eureka Seven did this...

http://hsbsitez.com/images/files_collection/10168.jpg

It's come to my attention that people haven't seen this... and I have no idea why. It's pretty easy to find, it has nothing to do with the main Macross series, and is probably one of the finest anime going IMO. So I just sorta assumed people had seen it. But they haven't. :/

MP is basically about two rival test pilots fighting over a girl and a fighter project at the same time. Moreover, the girl is heavily involved with a computer generated pop singer, and stuff gets a little out of control when the singing AI she helped construct falls madly in love with both of the pilots, and goes a bit psychotic. Emotionally tense dogfighting ensues.

It's an OVA of 4 episodes, with a super nice english dub. Probably the series that introduced me to anime in the first place.

Some of the macross are on netfrix though I dont know which ones specifically. I saw a couple movies on there.

Macross overall is okay, but it just ages so badly because of the music. The new series, Frontier I can't even stand because it's really bland, Kawaii and popish.

But Plus was in a league of it's own. The music was done by Yoko Kanno, aswell, I forgot to mention (The lass who did everything from GITS to Cowboy Bebop's soundtrack). >_>

Dude I've watched 200 episodes of fucking Naruto. I have seen Phantom Requiem for the Phantom, Death Note, Code Geass, Spice and Wolf, Darker Than Black, Bamboo Blade, Hetalia, Samurai 7, Ouran, Mushi Shi, every episode so far of Bleach, Gintama, Eden of the East, Birdy the Mighty, Beck Mongolian Chop Squad, Kenichi, Last Exile, School Rumble, Full Metal Panic, FMA: Brotherhood, Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop, Tsubasa Reservoir, Soul Eater, Nabari, Jyu-Oh-Sei, Blood+, Boku no Pico, Vandread, Honey and Clover, Kekkaishi, Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Vampire Hunter D, TTGL, Dead Leaves, Shin Chan, and Paranoia Agent, all that I can recall off the top of my head, all within the past year, and I've only loved like 10 or 11 of them. I've given them a chance, and now I just watch acclaimed classics.

Bacon_Barbarian
12-11-2011, 09:47 AM
Death Note is good, it's just suffering from Hype backlash. Same could be said of TTGL, but I don't think people actually ever turned off of TTGL. What's wrong with Kekkaishi? I've been reading it, and it's pretty sweet.

And did you seriously just hate on Miyazaki? :O

where did u leave off tho? it used to be good
Just before the future arc started.

Old stuffs were made by small audiences; Anime wasn't that popular back then, so the subjects on those were made for small audiences or for the taste of the directors. Now that Anime is a international industry, everything is made with a company mentality, producers and publishers have more powers and every Anime try to reach a bigger audience.

Most people say old animes were better, the deal is what they were living in a moment of "go big or die", now they don't need that, they just need to create products and have strong marketing.

Of course there are still good animes/mangas out there, Urasawa keeps drawing and his new manga, Billy Bat is great. The same goes in the Anime industry with studios like Gainax, trying to be the HBO of Anime (many times failling), but there are still good things, its just that the bad are bigger.

Sylux
12-11-2011, 01:25 PM
Kekkaishi isn't a Cowboy Bebop, that's what's wrong with it. Same thing with crap like Bleach and Blood+.

I've seen a lot too. You know a lot of the stuff you listed is some of the most popular anime out there, so even if you don't like it the majority does. You can stick with your classics, I just wanted to know why didn't like them.

Also, I was talking about the current ongoing stuff BTW, not any of that.

How long do you have to eat shit to realize you are eating shit?

Just asking, because if you like to watch bad shows constantly, how long do you need to realize that are bad.

Sylux
12-11-2011, 01:42 PM
Just because every other jackass without a brain out there thinks it's good doesn't mean it is, so it's pointless to bring up the popular argument. Most things that are so popular are watered-down and not tasty anymore, anyway.

Ozzaharwood

That's just your opinion. Your opinion is the minority. I'm thinking the same thing about you right now, and I'm sure if you said these things to 90&#37; of the people who watch anime, they'd think the same thing. You could call us jackasses without brains, but in the end arguing about this kind of stuff is like the special olympics, even if you win you are still retarded.

12-11-2011, 02:00 PM

Sorry Oz, but in the politest way possible, kinda gonna have to agree that 'popular' doesn't equal 'good'... After all, millions of youtubers seem to think that anime is all total shite. They certainly aren't a distant minority, either.

With that said, about the link you posted; Lolwut, Legend of the Galactic Heroes is ranked higher than TTGL?

I've never talked to anybody else who had even seen it, via internet or real life. Something funky is going on there... >_>

It will be depressing no matter what. You need arguments to say why one of those made the list, you need to make distinctions between genres, you need to make a clear know the strong and weak points of those, and so on. Most anime fans are just kids who know little or nothing about stories, animation or characters, they just watch it because something in it is kawai.

I recently started watching an anime entitled Pico to Chico, and all I can say is… Wow. Unlike so many modern shows that stumble over every excruciating minutia of their characters, Pico to Chico tastefully crafts a story and leaves the characters to mystery (only a fool would dare call the character development “shallow”). Post-modern existentialism is the soup of the day as we progress through their adventure, only to find that materialism is the only thing that keeps us living, but it’s not in a pompous, pseudo-intellectual style that implies that’s a recent phenomena; it’s handled delicately but will impact you in a way that leaves you asking “Why?” Unlike our hack-ridden film industry, Pico to Chico uses metaphors in an excruciatingly subtle way. Sharp-eyed spectators should be able to spot the humanistic properties Chico’s sister displays. Just when you think all of the questions raised will be answered, the film comes to a halt, leaving you, the viewer, left to ponder the hidden questions scholars have kept to themselves up to their untimely deaths.

I don’t think this film justifies an arbitrary rating of stars; it’s much better than that. It deserves a place among the highest modern philosophical works of our world. Nietzsche, thy name is Pico.

I sure wish I had time to find new anime and/or manga. Anything good out there that is not too violent (waayyyy too much blood), dirty (nudity or inappropriate humor), or has yaoi or yuri? Perhaps I could find the time to check it out. I need to do more research to improve on my art style and the plot for my own manga. I prefer shonen anime to shojo. Ouran High School Host Club is the only Shojo anime I've ever watched.

Currently I am reading the Naruto Shippuden manga. I'm not watching anything at the moment.

it was a realy good. (kinda confusing) series. But if you can think of the hints and signs that the you want to believe,

Afrobit
12-23-2011, 01:13 PM
To me the big issue in the series was how children get abandoned, looks at what happens to them, the consequences of their fate on others and finally what it takes to change “fate”.

Fate – The train metaphors show how people tend to be stuck on a specific path in life. And it actually takes a jarring event to shift them on a different track; a new path in life. The use of burning and apples represents the sacrifice often needed to jar someone out of the direction, the fate, they were headed.

As an adopted child I can relate to the notion of sacrifice expressed through Momoka the most, and others like Shouma. That most of the core cast needed to be saved at one point. That in order to actually be saved, people from the outside have to make a sacrifice. Not spontaneous combustion which could be an allusion to a financial or some other sacrifice. Like my parents who never had a biological child of their own and had to pay a lot of money to get me here. If they didn’t save me I would’ve been sent to the Child Grinder, which from my perspective just represents all the awful things that happens to societies abandoned children.

The characters in the story represent a shit tons of different sorts of kids abandoned by society.

Ringo – The child of an over worked single mother and a “franchise” father. While the dad technically never abandoned her, the new woman and child he was with alludes to how many dad’s will abandon one family that “doesn’t work out” and start an entirely new one, leaving the mother and child to suffer.

Yuri – Represents a victim of child abuse.

Teacher guy w/e his name is – Represents a kid who failed to live up to his parent’s lofty standards.

Shouma – His parent’s abandoned him for the sake of some ideal.

Himari – A straight up unwanted and abandoned child.

Kanba represented the resentment of doing anything to protect those close to him at whatever the cost to those on the outside. He also symbollized the resentment and bitterness that led to the insider vs outsider, us vs them, mentality through what happened to him and his family.

The terrorist allusions represent how people disgusted with this world often lash out at innocents because the perpetrators are much harder to single out and punish. The pink haired dude represents this as a curse or whatever. That nebulous anger and rage that has no outlet and eventually causes only more grief in the end.

Finally Ringo and Himari represent the woman, girl, female issue. That in this world, girls often get it the worst, since most people are more tolerable of keeping male children. The fact that Ringo and Himari were the ones that survived, strikes at this issue.


^I think this person explained the series pretty well.
